Should be a good buy if you want to get a pretty good OC with this chip anything less than that and you are definitely looking at needing even more cooling in terms of water. I'm pretty sure there's even a user on this very thread that has one and gets his 8350 up to 4.8 IBT AVX stable.

It should also be noted that these coolers are better than what you currently have. But, they will all suffer to keep these Octa-Cores within 70 C at Voltages that Exceed 1.5V on the Cores
Clocks are a little misleading as these chips Vary By A Lot On Voltage Requirements for Certain Clocks

I ask because I heard that voltage could kill your CPU besides heat. I thought the only danger was the heat..

Keep Thing Under 70 C on a daily Basis. Spikes are Normal. But a continuous temp over 70 is a NO-NO.
Stress Testing at under 70 with IBT AVX will guarantee you'll never exceed the temp on a daily basis.
